#19: Understanding the spiritual journey

All self help, personal development, growth, and self awareness work is part of the Spiritual Journey. That’s because Spirit means Life. And all of these endeavors should have an intent to facilitate greater happiness in your life. The mystery of the Spiritual Journey is that it happens within the realm of your perceptions, mind, emotions, and consciousness. There is no common external reference for clear communication. Much of what is passed down often gets distorted into myth and superstition by fear, self importance and ignorance. In spite of all these distortions and illusions the journey continues.

In this audio I attempt to put this in the language of common sense as much as possible.

Topics covered in this episode:

  • What is the value of ceremony and ritual?
  • Why reading all those self help and spiritual books won’t help much.
  • How do you measure your progress?
  • What is Dreaming?
  • What is the value of meditation, ceremony, ritual?
  • What is The Initiation of Death.

I also introduce the important element of your Point of Perception that is the critical element in determining all your beliefs and emotional state. Part of the intent of this podcast was to answer some of the questions I get about what goes on the Spiritual Journeys I lead.
